David Perkins admits he’s enjoying the hard work, as Dale’s stay in Tenerife continues.
The 36-year-old, who returned to the club this summer, has brought a huge amount of experience to the squad, and although one of the oldest, it seems that age is just a number with the midfielder’s quality already shining through.
“The legs feel pretty good, to be honest - I’m a pretty fit lad anyway,” said Perks.
“The Gaffer is on you from the word go. He has got the best out of me in the past, and hopefully he can do that again.
“We’re doing a lot of shape work and we’re working hard out here – it has been great so far. I’ve settled in well and I’m enjoying the hard work.
“I’ve done too many pre-seasons to mention, but I enjoy it because I love football. To play as many seasons as I have, you need to have that love for the game.”
